Started cutting and trimming my chassis
Installing the floating gear and wheels
Figuring out FRP configuration
Trying out a hammer type damper system
I was planning on trying out that sort of damper on my latest build as well but I wasn't really satisfied with the range of movement I was able to get compared to ball connector mass damper systems. Anyway, let me know how it works for you!
I was going to try the ball connector too but i was going for minimal parts and the ball connectors has a tendency to pop off during a run
By the way what range of movement are you looking for? Cuz for me the up and down movement is ok. I can control the up and down movement by adjusting the locknuts tighter or loose if i want more movement
Yeah, and I was puzzled why they included so many ball connectors for one set. Hahaha. I was looking to get at least 80-100% of the travel of a direct mount. Maybe one day I would fiddle around with the setup again but for now. I might be able to figure out a way to mount the block as low as a ball connected set.
Yep same here plus more parts means more weight and since this build may be a bit heavy i’m trying to lessen the weight elsewhere
Another weight reduction technique is to use the stock motor rotor rods as roller mounts also installed carbon reinforced large diameter wheels with hard white walled tires
The Beast is Hulking out! Now that i’ve figured out all the modifications for the chassis i’ve replicated all of that into this new green colored one
This is crazy but how come when I mount my rear plate on the bottom screw hole it tilts a few degrees.
I actually noticed the tilt which i am still working on fixing - i’ll post an update when i do
one question sir,
it seems like your rear roller width is a bit wider than regulation. does your place allow that? thank you
Oh i think that’s just the angle of the camera. The rear setup is well within race limits
I might be wrong but I think that he mounted 12-13mm double alum rollers on the 9mm hole and 17mm rollers on the 13mm hole.
